Ottawa Travel Photographer | The Bridge that Connects Europe and Asia in Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul, Turkey – Fatih Sultan Mehmete Bridge

The city of Istanbul, Turkey is located on both the continents of Europe and Asia. This picture shows one of two suspension bridges that span the Boğaziçi (Bosphorous Strait) to connect Europe and Asia. Named after Fatih Sultan Mehmete (an Ottoman Sultan), this picture and bridge angle was taken from the European Side (or Hisarüstü region). I crossed this bridge by Bus to visit Ankara, and while in Istanbul, the home of my friends that I stayed with literally faced the highway and very begging of the European side of this Bridge.
